750 ml bottle, bottle #07843. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a dark reddish/copper color with about an inch and a half frothy tan head. Head retention is excellent, and there's a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like sweet and tart dark fruit, oak, red wine, caramel and some sweet and peppery spice. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some vanilla. The vinous and woody flavors seem the strongest to me. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and is well carbonated. It's a good brew and definitely worth a try, but it's also pricey at $23.99 a bottle.

Poured into an Ommegang flute glass. Pours a dark, hazy mahogany brown with a massive fine light brown head that continued building for several minutes after pouring and slowly dissipated to a think layer with massive lacing (in a complex, continuous pattern that makes the term "lace" very appropriate). Aroma of dark and light fruit, red wine, oak, leather and tannins. Flavor is complex dark fruit, dark berries, tannin, port wine, wood; earthy. Finishes with a hint of vanilla, oak, and residual dark fruit flavors, slightly vinous. Medium bodied, but very active carbonation gives this a nice mouth feel. A complex dark Belgian that has acquired quite a bit more character from the barrelling. I'm glad I chose this to ring in the new year.

Beer pours thick and deep chocolate brown. Thick tan head with excellent lacing.

Fruity, malty aroma. Very complex, dark fruit like plum, caramel, toffee, chocolate, toast, rum. A wonderful combination.

Sweet and warming. Thick toffee and caramel, notes of rum and burnt sugar.

Slight acidity and tang in the finish.

Full bodied and creamy.

Wow, excellent beer! Like a great Belgian Quad with just a hint of barrel aging and sourness in the finish, what a great beer! So complex and full, every sip leaves you wanting another.
